That's how it all started

One day back in 2017, four Latin American women living far from home, started sharing their life stories, pains and hopes. Mariel was moving from the US to Australia, after leaving her startup in Peru. She lacked clarity about what was next for her. Lorena had just finished a Master's program at the London School of Economics, and her inner critic knocked at her door when thinking of her next career move. Patricia had relocated from the US to Mexico after quitting Google and she felt lost without her network and community. Karla had just moved to Germany for a temporary position to fulfill a professional dream. She felt guilty about leaving her family back home in the US.

Mariel, Lorena, Patricia and Karla, like many other women, go through personal and professional transitions continuously. They know that they want to live a purposeful life and make an impact.

They wondered how they could connect with more like-minded women who had gone through similar experiences or with role models who could provide inspiration for their career journeys.

They realized how many curated resources, methodologies, tools they had to guide women with similar backgrounds and career journeys. That late summer of 2017, Ñustas was born.
